This paper presents a Doherty power amplifier working from 3.1 GHz to 3.6 GHz. It adopts 10 W packaged GaN HEMTs from Cree/Wolfspeed and achieves a saturated output power in excess of 43.4 dBm. Saturated efficiency ranges from 57.7 % to 75.2 %, while efficiency at 6 dB back-off is between 44.2 % and 59.8 %. System-level simulations at 3.5 GHz adopting a 16QAM signal with 5 MHz bandwidth and 4 dB peak to average power ratio showed an adjacent channel power ratio of -28 dBc/Hz without pre-distortion, at an average output power of 43 dBm and with an average efficiency of 71 %.

Abstract

This paper presents a Doherty power amplifier working from 3.1 GHz to 3.6 GHz. It adopts 10 W packaged GaN HEMTs from Cree/Wolfspeed and achieves a saturated output power in excess of 43.4 dBm. Saturated efficiency ranges from 57.7 % to 75.2 %, while efficiency at 6 dB back-off is between 44.2 % and 59.8 %. System-level simulations at 3.5 GHz adopting a 16QAM signal with 5 MHz bandwidth and 4 dB peak to average power ratio showed an adjacent channel power ratio of -28 dBc/Hz without pre-distortion, at an average output power of 43 dBm and with an average efficiency of 71 %.
